Morgan Stanley

Placement and duration

The two-year program begins in July. Merchant Banking sponsors traditional private equity funds, infrastructure-focused funds and one of the industry-leading real estate investing platforms, all of which Analysts are exposed to while they work closely with exceptional senior executives on market-leading transactions.

Training program

The program begins with five weeks of intensive classroom-based training typically covering an introduction to the Firm, the essentials of finance, accounting and computing software or quantitative analysis. The classroom provides an environment where Analysts can exchange ideas and learn from their peers. Analysts also benefit from practical sessions covering topics such as valuation techniques, modeling methodologies and real-life case studies. During the training, Analysts work in smaller teams to put valuation and modeling skills to work and develop a pitch book, similar to what clients receive, which is presented to senior bankers at the end of the initial training.
